• Regular energy assistance to help with your annual home energy costs.
• Crisis assistance includes: retention of utility services, reconnections, oil deliveries and furnace repair or replacement. (Note: furnace repair or replacement is only available when home is owner occupied). It is offered when funds are available.
• Referrals for other heating related services.

It is intended to help pay a portion of heating costs and is not intended to pay the total annual heating cost. The amount of heating assistance benefit varies according to household size, income level, and household heating costs.
